PADI’S ENVIRONMENTALCONSERVATION PHILOSOPHY
A healthy underwater environment is essential to diving, and divers are great advocates for protecting our water resources. Throughout PADI courses, divers learn the importance of protecting fragile aquatic ecosystems and are encouraged to get involved in local and global conservation efforts. For more than two decades, PADI has partnered with the global non-profit organization Project AWARE, which is dedicated to protecting our oceans. As a diver, you join millions of others to form a growing force that can and does make a difference in the effort to preserve the underwater world. PADI courses encompass both environmental-awareness and -protection philosophies and hard information. PADI is committed to preserving the aquatic environment for future generations. Diving won’t survive without beautiful places to visit, and PADI divers are encouraged to take action with Project AWARE and make every dive count for a clean, healthy ocean planet.
